Award Day

Isn't it wonderful to get on line, check out your blog and find that people are actually reading your blog and that they are sweet enough to let you know they care. Here is a bit over due update on some wonderful friends I have met through blogging and there sweet ways of acknowledging our friendship with a special award to say that they care.

I have just recently met Marie from Poland who is blogging at 78 . She speaks Polish and I speak English and with another wonder of blogland, we get to communicate with an on line translator... how great is that! Marie is a woman after my own heart. A lover of God and also has a great passion for gardening. Do stop by her place and say hi in Polish!

This is from one of my first blogland friends Barbara who has been a treasure to me over at "Ramblings from an English Garden" She is always indulging my love for the English countryside, and sharing her testimony about her journey with the King!
Here is a special award that was given to me by Nanatrish. She has been sharing her heart and her precious walk with the King with many of us in blogland. I too think of her as my friend!

I love this award, because for me friendship is one of those things in life that is way up there at the top of my list. I value my friends and have been so blessed to have had so many precious people in my life that I can call friend.

Jesus called us his is a high honor to know that the King of Kings is calling us His friend...letting us in on everything he has heard from the Father.

John 15:15 I'm no longer calling you servants because servants don't understand what their master is thinking and planning. No, I've named you friends because I've let you in on everything I've heard from the Father.

How amazing is that...? I am a friend of God, not a servant, but a friend...a very precious truth. It is a truth that helps me see more clearly my relationship with God...and my relationship through him with others.

As this award denotes that friendship consists of things like trust, kindness, honesty, and caring I can think of many of you out their that I can extend this award too.

But today I do want to honor one special friend that we all have been missing a bit these days...DeeDee from Clapboard Cottage...formerly White Linen. I just want you to know DeeDee even though your comments have been turned off, I do visit you and so enjoy your precious blog...I am so glad you haven't left us forever. I hope someday soon you will let us back into your genteel world. I don't know what has caused your retreat but I am sure you have good reasons. I just really do miss you and your friendship that was so liberally given to many of us in this little corner of blog land...blessing my dear friend, and do accept all three of these awards from my heart!
